Overview

Being hunted by a demon sucks, no matter how tough you are. Nick St. James moved to Seattle, started a new career and created wards to hide from the supernatural world. It should have been enough, but after five years, his vampire sister-in-law found him. Now she's dead. Nick has to find out who keeps summoning the demon before it kills him and its next targets: a mother and her child. But this will require some help from the very people he's been trying to hide from: his friends. A voodoo houngan, a vampire coroner, a Norse goddess, and a few more unlikely allies will join forces to track down who summoned the demon, and find out why. Will he discover who wants them dead in time?

What lives beyond our sense of reality? Is it possible that the world of fantasy really exists? Friendly dragons, demons, angels, the fey, magic and intrigue all color the world for Nick St. James, former Private Investigator extraordinaire. His own special secrets? Speed, agility, and healing, all of the “supernatural” nature, but that life is behind him, or so he hopes…Nope, not a chance, when a close friend and vampire is killed, he is on it, seeking to avenge her death. Nick is then given a directive; find the fallen angel, Azazel by the Marshall’s Service, a collection of both heavenly and demonic beings. Looks like his days as a writer may be on hold as our snarky hero undertakes both the hunt for the fallen angel and the killer of his friend. Demon Dance by Brian Freyermuth has attitude, intrigue, humor and a blend of the paranormal that adds up to an engaging read with a hero follow. Mr. Freyermuth doesn’t ease us into his tale, we parachute into the action from page one. He does leave us wondering how Nick St. James came to be the man we meet. Will his history be shared at a later date? Nick is colorful, energetic and the kind of hero who feels larger than life to us mere mortals. I enjoyed Brian Freyermuth’s style, his ability to create each scene and dialogue that has bite! I say, read it! I received this copy from Brian Freyermuth in exchange for my honest review.

This is a new favorite Urban Fantasy. Oh my. It was a whirlwind ride of goodness. I love the main character, I loved the secondary characters, and even better, I loved the action and the fast paced, well written flow of this whole story. When his sister in law needs some help, all his hiding from his past is thrown into his present, and he’s in trouble. There’s a big bad demon, and things are about to get real, real fast.  I also need to say that the blurb for this book doesn’t do it justice. I read this book with only a little interest from that, and then when I finished, I decided it was GREAT!  Nick is a little broken. He’s almost human, and he makes you relate to him. However, when someone he cares about is in trouble, you will realize that maybe his humanity isn’t all there, all the time. I loved this about him! He’s so loyal and devoted to those around him. And though he’s so amazing, there’s some excellent side kick characters. I mean he has vampers for in-laws.  There’s a wonderful, awesome amount of action. I love love me some good action in a book. And I really love when it’s done really well too. It doesn’t start out with the slow informational background. It starts with crazy. You are thrown into tornado winds and you better hold on. Now don’t worry, the backgrounds come, but it was so perfectly put in that you forget you don’t need to take self defense lessons LOL. I seriously loved this about the book! And they leave you with just enough to question for those to come.  There are so many cool supernatural beings. There’s an excellent leading character. OOOOh, I know he’s not “the same” as my favorite Jim Butcher’s Harry Dresden, but it’s pretty damn close. He has that same dirty, gritty, vulnerable, self martyring feel. I think I am totally hooked… PLEASE don’t make me wait like Harry does for more :) The writing is flawless and I am so glad I took a chance on reading this one! GIMME GIMME GIMME some more RIGHT NOW…. Pretty please :) a WONDERFUL ACTION PACKED FAVORITE 5 PAWS!!!

Nick is trying to hide from his past and his pain. He has done so for a while but a visit from someone from his past shows him that is about to change. His sister in law needs help and he doesn't want to help her he is out of the game and wants to stay that way. When a demon is hell bent on killing him and those around him he knows he has to come out of his hiding and do the right things. Thinking of what his late wife would say to him helps him through some of those situations. Even knowing about the magical world he is still unprepared for what he finds when he begins looking. It goes higher than even he knows and he will have to walk a thin line between the good and evil. Reading the blurb for this book it had my interest. What I wasn't prepared for was how great this book was. It has so much going on. You have demons, angels, trolls, vampires and so so much more. I liked Nick right away. He seemed to be lost in his memories of the past and really just wanted to hide away not just from his past but the whole world. He isn't an ordinary guy as you soon see. Even when he doesn't want to get involved he is still ready to do the right thing. He has a few friends but soon finds just how good of friends he has as he dives into trying to solve the mystery of who is sending the demon after him and others and what they really want. You really get to see Nick come out of his shell and fight for the good of things. He has to face some hard twist in this. It is loaded with action that has you asking what next. The only thing I would have liked to see more of is his past before this but  I am hoping we get to see more of that in the next book. While I love a good paranormal romance this book is a refreshing take on paranormal beings. It is very intriguing and while it has a great ending you still want more in a good way. The author has created a wonderful world with this book and I eagerly look forward to the next one.
